Hood Seminary observes Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Speaker

Marguerite Lee

An awareness service (Eduworship) titled “Mourn, Celebrate, Connect: A Call for Justice, Care & Ministry.” will be held at Hood Theological Seminary on Tuesday, Oct. 24, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in The Aymer Center on the seminary campus at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive in Salisbury. Prevent Child Abuse awareness will also be a focus of this event.

Organized by the seminary’s Community Life Committee, the service will include a presentation by the Rev. Marguerite Lee, titled “Take a Stand – Make a Plan.” Lee, an alumna of Hood, is a member of the Mecklenburg County Domestic Violence Advocacy Council and founding director of the Beauty for Ashes Ministry Inc. She is also a retired educator and an ordained minister. All are welcome to attend this free event.

During October, the seminary will donate all chapel offerings to the Terrie Hess House, a nationally-accredited child advocacy center established in 2005 by Prevent Child Abuse Rowan. The facility provides a child-friendly environment where child victims of sexual and physical abuse (aged 0-17) and their non-offending caregivers receive needed services provided at absolutely no cost to the client or their families.

Also during October, the seminary will be collecting items for the Terrie Hess House and the Women’s Shelter/Family Crisis Council.

Hood Theological Seminary, located at 1810 Lutheran Synod Drive, Salisbury, is a graduate and professional school where intellectual discourse and ministerial preparation occur in tandem within the framework of a diverse community of faith.
